[Python-Dev] proposal: add basic money type to the standard library
Tue, 26 Feb 2002 21:17:23 +0100
and while I'm at it:
I propose adding an "abstract" money base type to the standard
library, to be subclassed by real money/decimal implementations.
if isinstance(v, basemoney):
# yay! it's money
print float(money) # let's hope it's not too much
The goal is not to standardize any behaviour beyond this; anything
else should be provided by subtypes.
More details here:
I can produce PEP and patch if necessary.
